Which is better? DL or WDW????

Ok i've never been to Dl b4 and i was wondering if it would be worth my while to check it out instead of wdw? I mean just the magic kingdom. Because i do know that Wdw Is a lot bigger, but i've always wanted to go to california, and i wanna check out california adventure. Wat do u guys think? Which is better, if u've on;y been to wdw?

Disney World is alot bigger than DL. Its also a lot better. I would say go to WDW unless you want to go to other parts of Cali too. If you just want Disney I would say WDW.

WDW is alot better and alot bigger but DL is awesome in itself!
but its hard to compare them directly...kinda like comparing apples and oranges

DL MK is better than WDW MK

DCA is sooo awesome! I love it there too!

but i think everyone should try DL...i love it there! but we arent gong back until 2005!

I would say you could go for a long weekend(like we did..for 3 days) and we got everything done we wanted to

ok I admit I've never been to DL but we are planning it sometime (i think!). I would rather go to WDW any day than DL just because there's more to do.

I have been to DL like a MILLION times because i live in San Diego.. but when i went to WDW last summer i was blown away. ?THERE IS SOOO MUCH TO DO! At DL there is just Magic Kingdom and now California Adventure (havne't been there yet). And at WDW there have all those different parks. But by DL in LA there is Knotts Berry Farm, Magic Mountian, Universal Studios, Hollywood... It just depends on what you like.

DL is the ultimate classic fun place to go. It's got more rides than MK WDW(just about). At DL you've got Indiana Jones, Alice in Wonder Land(1 of the best kiddie rides), plus the Pirates of the Caribean is better than the one @ WDW. The restaurant @ Pirate's is awesome, its kinda like the one at the Mexican pavilion, but of course, different food. By the way the Chicken Courdon Bleu is awesome. DCA was a little disappointing after all the hype, but the California Screamin' and Soarin' Over California make it worth while. Also, SOC has smell-a-vision, when you fly over the Napa Valley vinyards you can smell grapes and the same effect when flying over the citrus orchards. For souvinears check out the sunglasses shop. There are some wacky glasses there, perfect if you want to go as Elton John for next Halloween.:D DL is really fun, sure WDW is bigger, but DL came first and that is where you want to go if you want to see MK done the right way.

I've never been to Disneyland either, but I desperately want to go!!

I'd love to ride:

Indiana Jones
Alice in Wonderland
Soaring Over California
The Matterhorn
And see the Sleeping Beauty walkthrough

(Although what that had to do with the original post I don't know )

I think you guys are wrong comparing the two. Yes WDW is much bigger and has epcot,mgm, Ak and the rest but Don;t forget DL was walts first park. A lot of the things you see there were original WD ideas. I would say visit both (if you can) But if I had to pic kjust one. . . WDW
